This is pretty straightforward. Sharpness+ will add roughly either 12 or 18% KO and physical damage, while focus will make superpounding, THE easiest way to get KO's much easier.
By the way, I don't need to hear any more "super pound sucks!". The SS is amazing for KO'ing monsters, as long as you don't do it when the monster is tripped or trapped etc.

Sharpness+1 is Better by a longshot. Ive used both seperately i get the best outcome with sharp+1 on ala, when you have sharp+1 it takes 2 hits to stun ala (assuming ur using jho hammer or ala hammer) but without it, it takes 3. Sharp+1 gives alot of K0 damage and attack damage. I use the superpound 70% of the time while hammering and most of the time i have alot of time to charge so it doesnt bother me that i dont have focus. Even though focus has its uses, Sharpness+1 is far better, maybe even one of the best blademaster skill in the game. If you want i can show you a set that both

I'd certainly choose Sharpness +1, all it takes is a keen eye for openings in a monster's defences to score a triple pound.
It pays to not be cautious sometimes, roll your sleeves up and wade into the thick of it, it's what the hammer was made for.

I think it's an easy choice. Sharpness +1 just adds so much damage when using either the Jho or Ala hammer, and it's sti great on any other weapon.
dont talk crap, superpound is always viable. you just need to use your brain to position yourself correctly. that said, if you can position yourself correctly you can usually get a triple pound off.
Let's not take things to extremes here -_-. I never said it wasn't viable without focus, but nobody's going to argue that it isn't more viable with it. The question isn't about Super Pound vs Triple Pound, it's focus vs sharpness.

i would have to say super pound is good for KOing a monster when you need to act fast like if a rathalos was turning around hold the charge then smashy smashy
